HC Deb 01 April 1971 vol 814 c427W
Mr. Kinnock

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if, in future, he will publish at six monthly intervals a regional economic employment figure which would take into account the unemployment rate, the labour migration rate and the activity rate for all regions of Great Britain, expressed as a ratio of the national average.

Mr. Dudley Smith

No. The main statistics for regions of the United Kingdom are published as soon as they become available and in addition are brought together each year in the Abstract of Regional Statistics, which is published by the Central Statistical Office.
